SOLD Austin Seven MK1. 850cc. Tartan Red. Matching numbers. 3 owners. Stunning example.


We are very pleased to offer an absolutely stunning and very early 1960 Mk1 Austin Seven. This fantastic example, finished in Tartan Red with its original matching red and grey trim and optional extra heater was built in November 1960 and supplied by Car Mart in Colchester, it is accompanied with its original handbook, an early registration document book and a heritage certificate. In 2010 it was restored to a very high standard and has only seen dry use since and is such presented in ready to use and enjoy condition and it could easily draw an admiring crowd at any show, and anywhere I take it, people just fall in love with it.

On the road is where the smiles start. The original 850 engine is very smooth and almost silent, it fires instantly through the floor start button and performs well, the gearbox is also very precise and the magic wand gearstick adds to the experience. This Seven represents the pure Mini driving experience, large steering wheel, simple centre binnacle and sliding windows. It also sits on a new set of cross ply Camac tyres on its recently refurbished steel wheels so the exeperience is as close to driving it in 1960 as possible. On the twisty stuff its fantatsic and I have been regularly driving this gem as it is quite addictive.

The interior is very well presented and still retains its original seats and door cards. We have recently replaced the roof liner, dash liner and fitted a Newton commercial carpet set, It also has lap belts which are a nice addition.

This Seven has a fantastic shell with the correct fluted sills and it is body coloured underneath making keeping it clean a simple task. The floor pans are gleaming as are the subframes. The engine bay is also well detailed and the paintwork and chrome work are gleaming. The Mini is also fully serviced, checked and ready to go and be enjoyed and offers its new owner the chance to join and exclusive Classic Mini club. It will be supplied with a full MOT and is of course MOT and Tax exempt.
